Conversations with world experts on changing technologies and future of the web. The Web Ahead is your shortcut to keeping up.
Hosted by Jen Simmons.
Web projects have gotten very complex in the last few years, but the hardest part isn't the technology — it's the humanity. The success or failure of big projects is contingent on leadership, vision and planning. Trent Walton joins Jen Simmons to tell tales of working on the microsoft.com homepage and other big projects — sharing what can go right and what can go wrong. He also talks about reviving the original 1994 version of microsoft.com, and the importance of archiving the web.
